The Center was built in the days of Tainan County. As the county was large in area and the seat of the county government was Xinying in the north, the Southern Area Integrated Activity Center was planned to promote a cultural industry north-south balance. Completed and opened in 1998, it had a performance hall, art museum, meeting hall, children’s hall, offices and outdoor performance plaza, and became an important cultural resource for the people of the Xinan area. It was renamed Gueiren Cultural Center after Tainan County and Tainan City were merged. At present, it holds exhibitions and performances and provides all-round art and cultural education, making effective use of its space and resources. It is an important center for cultural exhibition and performance in Tainan.
